Mojo Monday .. on Monday!!!

I'm so excited!!! I actually played Mojo Monday ... on Monday! Woo hoo!!! This card was too much fun, so let me tell you a few things about it. I used the Le Jardin Botanique stamp set. I've had it for a while and when I saw this sketch, this stamp set had everything that the sketch had! Can't beat that! For the tree, I stamped it in VersaMark and colored it in using Stampin' Up! Pastels. Sometimes I really think that Pastels get overlooked, but you get 51 colors all in one package for only $24.95. There are numerous techniques also that you can do with Pastels! If you are a new stamper - they are a perfect way to get started! Now, did you notice the lines on the Garden Green cardstock? All I did was score a line from top to bottom, every 1/4"! I thought this pattern really added to the background of this card. Listed below is everything that I used for this card. If you have any questions, just ask! You can post it to the right in the Let's Chat box, click on the "comments" below and post there or shoot me an email! And look, you don't even have to get up to do that! :-)
